I had a lot of books in storage and needed to find a shelving solution that was affordable and non-toxic. The answer? Industrial shelving from Home Depot (or other retailers, including Target). For a fraction of what traditional bookshelves cost, you can have long-lasting, durable, non-toxic shelving!
Materials I used:
+ Home Depot HDX 3-Shelf and 5-Shelf Steel Shelving Units in Black
+ IKEA Variera Shelf Liner
+ Commercial Electric 8 in. UV Cable Ties - Black
+ Swingline desktop 3-hole punch
Step 1: Cut Shelf Liner.
Cut the shelf liner to fit the shelves.
Step 2: Punch Holes in Shelf Liner.
Using a hole punch, punch holes in the shelf liner to prepare for attachment to the shelving unit.
Step 3: Zip-tie Shelf Liner to Shelves.
Using zip ties, attach the shelf liner to the shelves.
Step 4: Enjoy Your Super Cheap, Super Durable Non-toxic Shelves!
